Burrenbeo Trust ‘Working for Wellbeing of People and Place’
Heart, Mountain, Ocean and Soul
How nature helps us to self-regulate.
by David Staunton speaking at the;
Working for Wellbeing of People and Place
12th and 13th August, 2016.
Corofin, Co Clare
I have a particular fondness for the wonderful and evocative Burren in Co Clare and when the invitation came to speak at Burrenbeo Trust’s ‘Working for Wellbeing of People and Place’ I jumped at the opportunity to once again visit this unique landscape.
Burrenbeo Trust both understands and models relevant ecopsychology in their work. In their own words they see the importance of ‘connecting people and place’. This ‘connection’ is the essence of ensuring that we view ourselves as part of nature – not ‘separate from’ or ‘in charge of’ the natural world. Through exploring this ‘connection’ we can learn a lot about ourselves in terms of self-care and self-regulation and perhaps only then can the words of Theodore Roszak make real sense to us;
‘The needs of the planet are the needs of the person
The rights of the person are the rights of the planet’
